Vlerick Business School's Ghent Campus, our main conference venue on Thursday the 6th and Friday the 7th of July 2017, is housed on the premises of the historic ‘Groot Seminarie’ in the heart of the city of Ghent. Magnificently renovated and completely reconstructed in 2003, the design of the building conserves the beauty of the original vaulted ceilings but is now centred around two impressive atria, with state-of-the-art lecture halls, meeting places, and open transparent office spaces. As an internationally recognised management platform, the campus fosters open exchange between all its users from students and faculty to researchers, entrepreneurs, executives and visitors.
